Sigma Tau Gamma is a national college fraternity founded in 1920 by veterans of the First World War. Founded as a society of men who endeavor to promote the highest ideals of manhood, brotherhood, and citizenship, its members dedicate themselves to a set of six principles: value, learning, leadership, excellence, benefit, and integrity.
Members of Sigma Tau Gamma strive to become better men by improving themselves, become better brothers by improving the Fraternity, and become better citizens by improving their college, community, and country. These are lofty and admirable goals. Our principles have been embraced by our members and now serve as our guide, each practiced everyday by our members.
In keeping with the purpose of the Fraternity, members of Sigma Tau Gamma, both collegiate and alumni, participate in the "Path of Principles Program". This program begins with the education of our newest members and continues throughout our lifetime membership, serving as a continuous reminder that the principles are more than just words, they are a lifestyle.
As a lasting gesture of these principles, our Founders gave us the lessons contained in our Ritual. Together with the Path of Principles Program, the Ritual of Sigma Tau Gamma will forever serve our members as the expression of our purpose to promote the highest ideals of manhood, brotherhood, and citizenship.
